Escape to the unspoilt Yorkshire Dales countryside and meet a hilarious community of colourful characters. Their bawdy wit in this romantic comedy is guaranteed to leave a smile on your face!

In a beautiful lost corner of the Yorkshire Dales, Lana Donati hatches a plan to boost business for the area by having the Grand Départ route pass through their village. But it's not an easy task persuading the decision-makers that their village is Tour de France material...

First, she must convince the small community to work together, a challenging mission when the people involved include Lana's unlucky-in-love brother Tom, the man-eating WI chair Yolanda, bickering spouses Gerry and Sue, and Lana's arch-nemesis, Stewart McLean, whose offbeat ideas might just cost them everything.

A feel-good romance for lovers of Jenny Colgan, Fiona Gibson and Sue Moorcroft, this is the perfect antidote to fight the winter blues.
